Construction work on the brand new 100-bed Premier Inn hotel in Sandown has been stopped amid the coronavirus crisis.
In light of government advice regarding social distancing and to protect the health and safety of workers and neighbours, Premier Inn and Carter Lauren have taken the decision to temporarily stop work on the Esplanade site.
The site was closed down yesterday (Wednesday) but security guards are in place 24/7 to ensure the site is safe and secure.
The hotel was originally set to open in Spring 2020 but that was pushed back to Summer 2020. With the coronavirus situation continuing and work completely stopped, it is currently unclear when the hotel will now open.
